Celebrating Somerset as a place to live, work, play and learn

We encourage communities, organisations, businesses and individuals to celebrate our county 365 days a year, but especially over the weekend nearest to 11th May, Somerset Day.

Somerset Day 365 inspires pride in our historic county and all it has to offer.

We want everyone to relish in the stunning countryside, historic cities, abundant produce, festival culture and rich heritage of the county historically known as ‘the land of the summer people’.
